Re: 2015 UK Election

This does mean Labour would try and push throw a new trident deal and you would be draft not to believe the tories supporting the bill to get it though. Unless your comment was about my comment about ed wont being in Alex pocket? Neither newspaper columns nor party pledges mean anything at the mome...

You do tend to proclaim thing...

Re: Quad Core CPUs for Video Encoding - Are they Worth it

I upgraded to an i7 quad core (or 8 with hyper threading, I suppose) and a relatively hefty GPU (Radeon HD 7700 series). The combination of the two is highly satisfactory. My productivity (if you can call it that for hobby work) has massively increased. I was lucky and spotted this machine on Gumtre...

The Political Compass

This is circulating Facebook and is quite interesting insomuch as it expands upon the traditional left > right linear line of political ideas. The site which hosts the questionnaire provides some fascinating analysis and looks at historical party placement too. Well worth a read. I took the test and...

Re: Poundland to buy out 99p stores

I often wondered where these £1 shops manage to get their Duracell batteries? Back in the 90s, they didn't look as if they were the genuine article, sometimes packaged in generic packaging. Would you like to know what I paid for Energizer or Duracell Procell Brand AA/AAA batteries when I supplied t...

Re: Poundland to buy out 99p stores

I used to spend a lot of time at trade wholesalers. You'd be staggered at the quantity and breadth of products which sold for 35p - not just moulded plastic soap dishes and the like - you could buy a 3m telephone extension cord for that price and sell it for £1.99. Keep in mine that was a wholesale ...

Re: 2015 UK Election

Agree on most of that, but just to clarify my comment about the lack of appetite for a Labour-led government, I was referring to England, but I agree with what you say about Scotland. Labour may be the Scots' least-worst option for UK government, but that shouldn't be confused as an appetite by any...

Re: 2015 UK Election

The talk is, Torys migh get the most seats JUST, with labour coming second, but the maths would work out for Lab / SNP / Lib dems Goverment. And since most of the seats in scotland would have went to Labour in the first , I think its fair to say people are trying to make sure further controlls are ...
